Hey, 

Noob here! 2 months ago I heard about a band called Pineapple Thief and I can't believe I've never heard of them. I edited some old movies to their music for fun over the weekend and their music really works well, I can't believe they're not a big band. Started at the beginning with Abducting the Unicorn then Variations on a Dream, lots of good stuff. Has everyone else heard of them, how did I miss them?

Here are the videos if anyone wants to watch:

p.s hopefully this is the right place to put this?

I've been a fan of theirs for the last couple of years or so. Really like their sound.

Nice vidsSmile
Regarding the part of your post I highlighted: I think Pineapple Thief sounds way too much like Porcupine Tree - I mean even the name sounds oddly similar. They're both abbreviated the same wayTongue
Same droopy and rainy day atmospheres, melancholic lyrics, Gilmour like guitar solos and those oozing synth scapes in the back. Now I adore Porcupine Tree, but if I want something in the same vein I'll pop on the original ie Pink Floyd. 
That being said, I still have a thing for the title track on What We Have Sown (even if it again sounds uncannily like Porcupine TreeTongue).

I have a few of their albums. I've never picked up on any Floydian vibe to be honest.
Undeniably owes a lot to Radiohead (clever, Alt-Rock with an experimental twist) and Porcupine Tree (the Prog aspects - 'heavier', melancholic, and involved, longer cuts) maybe even a touch of The Verve's Psychy Alt-Pop.
My pick from the 3 I have - Little Man, Tightly Unwound and All The Wars, is Tightly Unwound.
The samples I've heard of Magnolia haven't prompted me to get the vinyl.
Really up-to-date 'modern' X-over.
